Robotic surgery for hepatic neoplasms: Where does it fit in the minimally invasive surgery landscape?(0)
This month’s column identifies prospective clinical trials aimed at clarifying the role of laparoscopic and robotic surgery for hepatic neoplasms.
New studies are identified suggesting that more frequent or intensive surveillance testing may not result in earlier detection of cancer recurrence.
Colorectal screening options for patients younger than 50 years of age and trends in colorectal cancer rates for this age group are summarized.
The evolving clinical management of sentinel node-positive melanoma: The impact of MSLT-II on clinical practice
The results of the Multicenter Selective Lymphadenectomy Trial-II as they relate to treatment recommendations for melanoma patients with a positive sentinel lymph mode biopsy are summarized.
